I'm more alive there. but I still post some of my favorite work here on DA
ahem.. so anyway...
Aloha I'm Becky and I've become a busy bee making pictures all day long, which leaves me very little time to update DA. But thank you for taking time to view my photos. I hope that some of them make you smile or laugh.
I'm of Dutch-Nepali blood but grew up mostly in the Philippines then relocated to London for my work. I'm a foreigner in every country I'm in, but my true citizenship resides online, here.
My purpose for making photos is to remind others of how beautiful they are and to see how much goodness and beauty there is in the world. Yeah I know it sounds very bubbly and simplistic to say, but it's true. I think it's easier to dwell on dark and negative things. It's easy to stay in depression. It's easy to find fault. It's easy to be angry. It's not easy to find that little bit of light and hope, knowing things will get better.
As my work has grown throughout the years from only illustration to graphic design and then photography, my work has skewed more into conceptual advertising. Many of the photos I work on can't be published online, specially not on a site like DA. Many touchy clients, you know how it goes.
But you can see a peek of the scale of my bigger work at www.beckyvanommen.com which is only for Photography.
I run my own advertising agency called The Paper Boat Creative and so you can see my other artwork there which is really all commercial. Go check out www.paperboatcreative.com
I am forever grateful to Deviantart and the amazing community it has created. I love watching the growth of the artists, and love seeing all the beautiful ideas being born each day. In our craziness, we are reminded that we are together.
Love you all very much, keep creating art and keep sharing good work with others.
